Newhaven Skip Hire FAQs

If I require a skip on a road in Newhaven, will I need to get a permit?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you will have to obtain authorisation from your local council in Newhaven, which is known as a permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this for you, so it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip license, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial size skips used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate large amounts of waste materials.

Can you deliver skips across East Sussex?

This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most popular sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are perfect for numerous residential and commercial jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste such as dirt, rubble and bricks.

Can I fill up the skip above the top?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will be asked to remove any rubbish over the level load mark. This means that you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you select the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size is best. We will be pleased to help.

What is the cost of skip hire in Newhaven?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Newhaven, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we provide in your area and how much each one will cost you to hire. If your skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.

Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there on the day it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.

Having said that, if this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to be concerned. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ensure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.

Am I able to get a skip which has a drop down door?

Using a skip that has a drop door helps make loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste such as dirt or concrete, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky items like household furniture much easier also.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical items including old televisions, refrigerators, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.

How do you order a skip online?

Hiring a skip in Newhaven with us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you require and then enter a couple of details about when and where you need the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

Can I throw all kinds of waste in the skip?

You are allowed to throw a variety of waste types in the skip. This includes timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a household clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted too. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.

However, there are a few items that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risk they might trigger.

You can’t get rid of your freezer, printer or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous materials in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from your general waste.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Please contact us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can generally hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of offering a preferred collection time when making your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It might take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

What happens to my waste once the skip is collected?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Newhaven where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We provide a whole selection of skip sizes to domestic and commercial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different skip sizes available, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
